Introduction:
With CA Document Viewer 2.1 you used to be able to select and download multiple reports and bring them down all at once as text reports to the PC to process the data using a feature called auto-import.  Now with Web Viewer 12.1 you can only bring the reports down individually and save one at a time. It now takes a minute each to process these reports. 
Instructions:

Content Viewer 14.0 (Web Viewer 14.0), distributed with CA View 14.0,  has a web api you can call. This means you can access reports without having to go through the Content Viewer interface. Which means you can use any programming language that calls web apis  to download as many reports you want automatically and then do what you want with these reports.
